Joey has joined the blog world

Be forewarned, it's not for everyone but Joey now has space to discuss his passions and I'm sure it will generate conversations.

Happy Dance

I don't have a picture but I did finish a friendship bracelet for Joey-it's black and a tealish blue.

It's Gone

My mom just gave me the news......my childhood home was closed today-officially taken over by new people. It had been part of my life for 30 years. We had actually moved into the home on my 3rd birthday...and I still remember the day we moved in. Lots of memories...and I'm in shock.

As promised

So lately, I've been enthralled in March Madness. I've been able to watch the games at work-luckily it's been slow. I'm in a pool with my family and I'm tied for last place! Oh well, I'm having fun watching the games and that is all that matters to me at this point.
Joey and I have now been living together for a year...wow! I think that we're both surprised that it's lasting this long considering that when we both met, neither one of us was looking for a serious relationship. Go figure.
Crafts-I'm still working on this HUGE latch hook. At first I didn't think that I was going to like doing it-lots of color changes-but it's turning out really nice. I've been eyeing some cross-stitch stuff that I'll probably work on soon for gifts.
Work....sigh...so many changes are going to be happening soon. My office will be changing. Some of my coworkers are looking for greener pastures. I only wish that the one who needs to leave would just leave. There has been no progress on their part in being more efficient in their role and not having the rest of us have to redo what they did in order for it to be right and make sense. So my unit is only 4 people. This one person NEEDS to leave. And the other two are looking for the greener pastures...leaving me as the senior person...and I've only been there since October...and I still have questions about things. With my role, things change on almost a daily basis-new rules, new ways of trying to make sure that the State money goes to the right people, etc. Can be very frustrating and overwhelming at times. That's probably a huge reason why I cannot get physically healthy lately. I'm trying to take everything in stride but it is hard. I have no energy to look for another job yet alone even a part-time job to help cover some of the bills. So I'm trying to hang on by a thread.
Cats-well, it is just another stress in trying to keep Zeitgeist safe from the others. She spends most of her time on the floor surrounded by boxes of stuff that have never been unpacked. If I take her out, she'll spend some time with me. She continues to be a fiend for human affection-calling out to me and Joey if she wants attention. She continues to eat and drink but just to look at her, you know she is just so old. All I can do is just try to give her as much love and affection that I can. The others are still the same-crazy little characters!
I've had a little increase in my reading. I'm averaging about one book a week. Far from the several that I used to be able to finish back in NYC. Only sometimes do I actually miss NYC!.

So where have I been?

Well, it's been one stress after another. To make it all really quick....Zeitgeist got attached by Tiger a few nights ago and yesterday was acting really strange before I left for work. I fear that the time is coming soon for her crossing the Rainbow Bridge.
Work is work-nothing at all has changed there in regards to my coworker...sigh.
Joey is finishing up his first year at his school and is stressing about a huge project that is due soon.
My physical ailments...if it's not one thing, it's another. Now I seem to be having hives-broke out Wednesday and every day there is a new scratching post on my body. Annoying to say the least.
Crafts-been working on a huge latch hook. Haven't done any cross-stitching in a while.
Movies-check out what I've been watching on my movie blog (listed in sidebar).
Reading-always can see my thoughts on my book blog (listed in sidebar).
I promise that I will post a more detailed blog soon....I swear! I just gotta get to the pharmacy now and pick up drugs....damn itching!

This is the old lady-Zeitgeist-last weekend. She was acting like she was a youngun again with the catnip.

Einstein Quote

"Imagination is more important than knowledge. For knowledge is limited, whereas imagination embraces the entire world, stimulating progress, giving birth to evolution."
